About the distillery

Distillery

Glenkinchie

Glenkinchie Distillery, situated in East Lothian, Scotland, is celebrated for its production of exceptional single malt Scotch whisky. With a history tracing back to 1837, this distillery has upheld its commitment to the craft of whisky-making for over a century. Nestled amidst the picturesque countryside, Glenkinchie Distillery offers visitors an immersive experience into the world of whisky production. Its traditional red-brick buildings house the distinctive copper pot stills where the art of distillation takes place. The location of the distillery plays a crucial role in shaping the flavors of Glenkinchie whisky. The mild, maritime climate of the region, combined with the water sourced from the Lammermuir Hills, imparts a gentle and smooth character to the whisky. One interesting fact about Glenkinchie Distillery is that it is often referred to as "The Edinburgh Malt" due to its proximity to Scotland's capital city. This nickname highlights its status as one of the few remaining distilleries in the Lowland region, known for producing whiskies with lighter and more delicate profiles compared to the whiskies from the Highland and Islay regions. Glenkinchie whiskies boast a diverse range of flavors. The 12-year-old expression offers a delightful combination of floral and fruity notes, while the Distiller's Edition presents a more complex and rich flavor profile, with hints of vanilla and spice. These whiskies showcase the craftsmanship and attention to detail that define Glenkinchie's production process.
